I am always looking for new things to offer my lovely authors, to help them get their books out there to the reading public. I'm looking at creating an email that I can send out to public libraries across the country, to let them know about the amazing books they can order from official suppliers. I'm hoping this can help us all out.
I've made a series of short videos about the proper use of apostrohpes.

I format books for ebook and print, using Vellum software. I also proofread and offer self-publishing advice for authors wanting to 'do it themselves' but need a little hand-holding to begin with.
My fees are:
Formatting - ebook only $55
Formatting - print only $55
Formatting - ebook and print bundle $77
Proofreading - $55 per hour. My reading pace is about 8k words per hour, so an 80K novel will cost around $550.
Self-publishing assisance - $55 per hour. (ie, registering ISBNs with Thorpe Bowker to each title, loading titles onto Ingram Spark, re-sizing ebook covers into print for new editions etc.)
If you're interested in hiring me for your publishing projects, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you an estimate/quote. Thank you.
Grab this nifty ebook below (it's in .epub or .mobi format, which will open on any computer) for information about formatting and self-publishing.
If you have the ibooks or kobo app installed on your computer (or ereader) grab the .epub file.
If you have the Kindle app on your computer or ereader, grab the .mobi file.
Ace The Apostrophe.
Here's a guide book with a few quizzes and links to help you get a really good handle on how to use the apostrophe (and a few examples of how not to.) Available in .epub or .mobi
